About this book

Reviews

"Despite Washington's decision to withdraw American forces from Afghanistan by 2014, South Asia will continue to dominate the US foreign policy agenda. The US may think it has left South Asia but South Asia will not leave the US alone so easily. Pakistan will remain one of the principle challenges of the US foreign policy. A nuclear armed nation which is increasingly the epicentre of Islamist extremism poses a dangerous challenge especially as the trust deficit between Islamabad and Washington is widening by the day. Nirode Mohanty captures the nuances of the US-Pakistan relationship vividly in this book and succeeds in putting it in the broader regional context where US-India ties are more robust than they have ever been in the past. A well-presented, compelling narrative!" - Harsh V. Pant, King's College London, UK

"Nirode Mohanty has written a much-needed text that systematically analyzes the salient issues. Mohanty provides a succinct history and places the discussion in the context of international relationship in a way that would be understandable to readers without prior knowledge of the subcontinent. To be sure, there are a number of recent publications that shed light on various aspects of this complex interrelations among the three nations, few of these focus so squarely on the broad range of issues as does this book. The book comes out at a critical time when the US is about to conclude the longest war in its history and come out of Afghanistan. How the region adapts to the resulting changes will be critical for all of us. I am delighted that Mohanty's well-researched, lucidly written book will provide much needed insight to those who might read it as a part of a class assignment or to become informed about an important region of the world." - Dipak K. Gupta, San Diego State University, USA
